    Hey there!
    I'm Simon, 30yo guy from Belgium.
    It's always hard to describe your personality in a few lines but I'll do my best!

    WHERE I COME FROM:
    My roots are in Wallonia, the French speaking part of Belgium but I also speak Dutch after spending 4 years in the Flemish region, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium.

    WHO I AM:
    I think of myself as a traveler of the world, trying to find that little place that will make me stay put but until now I'm still addicted to moving and hitting the road. My way of travelling is by finding jobs along, mixing with locals, see the country in full view and learning languages along the way.
    I'm a very curious guy, laid back, open to everyone ideas and customs.
    I like to explore the surroundings and go on hikes in the region I live.
    My passions include hiking, long distance cycling, reading, travelling...sports that include nature in general.
    I'm a big music lover, I don't play any instrument but I'm always listening to music of all genre and I'm a movie addict.

    WHAT I DO IN BELGIUM:
    I work for a small tour operator, organising trips and one day excursions from scratch. Travelling is my passion and I'm really happy I could make it my work. But right now, my job is being put on hold due to the Covid19 situation.

    WHY I CAME TO CROATIA:
    My job being put on pause, I decided to take a month in Croatia and meet old friends I made while I was staying in Porto in 2019. Before meeting them beginning of September, I decided to spend most of August, volunteering in a project I'd find useful, helping a good cause and good people.

    MY EXPERIENCE VOLUNTEERING:
    Last summer I spent a month volunteering in an eco farm in south west Portugal, Alentejo region.
    I helped in the garden, with pigs, chicken, ducks, hard work, building stuff like enclosures, putting a roof on a barn...

    In December of last year, I traveled to Reunion Island and crossed the entire island with my rucksack (GRR2 - 140 km). After that, I helped in two different projects.
    One gardening and working in a eco hostel. Second one in a eco farm, picking passion fruits, bananas, gardening and clearing the path of small trees and bad weeds.

    WHY I'M ON WORKAWAY:
    I needed to go back to the basics, be closed to the earth, nature and the people who actually care for each others. I want to get my hands dirty and want to do something practical: have a product at the end of the day.
    I'd like to help as much as possible people who have eco-projects, hostels that need help or ONG and be a part of their dreams.
    If you accept me, I'll give everything to help and be useful to your project.
    I'm a hard worker full of motivation, quick learner that never hesitates to take action and initiatives. I'm easy going and easy to be around.
    I'll spend the next month volunteering for projects that speak to me and I hope to see you along the way!
